Genre: Comedy
Written by Beth Henley, Directed by Jonathan Demme

Making his theatrical debut, Academy Award-winning director Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs) collaborates with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Beth Henley (Crimes of the Heart) on a new version of this bitterly funny play. 

A year after the death of her son, Claire checks into a recovery center in the desert, searching for a way to cope.  When her mother, daughter and sister arrive to participate in "family week," long-dormant traumas collide with recent tragedies in comical, surprising and deeply moving ways.   United in this family struggle, the women rage and reach out in an effort to reconcile their love with the way things are. 

Acclaimed actors Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Ruined), Kathleen Chalfant (MCC's Wit), Rosemarie DeWitt (Rachel Getting Married) and Sami Gayle (Gypsy) have come together for this all new MCC Theater production.
